Red light to Connelly

The City of Greenville is finally getting red light cameras. Many thanks to our city leaders for going through the arduous process of gaining support from the city council, the county commissioners, the school board and the North Carolina General Assembly.

All of the fines paid by violators will go to the public schools. This is an important public safety initiative, but one of the candidates for mayor, P.J. Connelly, was unsupportive when this came before the city council.

On March 20, when the Greenville City Council put this program in place, Connelly voted against it. This is often the case with safety initiatives.

Fortunately, good things continue to happen in our fine city because Connelly is rarely able to find others to support his extreme positions.

Neither of these characteristics — extremism and an inability to effectively persuade others — are good qualifications for a mayor.

I grew up in Duplin County and have family in Wilmington and friends in New Bern. I saw up close the hurricane flood bullet Greenville just dodged. The crime spike, unfinished roads, and jobs are, or should be, getting attention of the Greenville mayor and council. But in a growing city, effective…

Leadership is important in any endeavor, and at ECU we have had a spotty record in athletics. We have had some very good ADs and some that were not that good.

I came to ECU in 1961 and our leader in everything was Leo Jenkins, and even though he was the chancellor he also lead us in athletics.…

The North Carolina State Board of Elections, a bipartisan independent agency charged with overseeing North Carolina elections, compiled a post-election audit report (April 21, 2017) from the general election 2016 after examining nearly 4.8 million ballots cast and found two cases of voter…

Awash in virtual ink and bitterly clinging to resentment from last autumn, Calvin Mercer continues to publish passive-aggressive missives railing against Greenville’s elected leadership. Appended to his most recent correspondence, a rehashed Daily Reflector letter addressing the “highly…

The Orange County Register got it right, and thank you Daily Reflector for including it in your Other Voices column.

“For too long, Congress has abdicated its constitutional obligations with respect to war powers.” Did you know the U.S. military is currently deployed and combat ready in…

My sincere thanks to the George H.W. Bush family for giving us all a chance to remember what America is all about. 

The patriatism, the integrity and the honesty was a refreshing reminder of what I value in my country. The kind, respectful and humorous words were a pleasure to hear.

Maybe I or the Reflector got this wrong: $20 million assigned for athletic deficit and facilities; $10 million of that from a $95 million ECU Physicians accrued fund balance. It is to be spent because attendance is down at athletic events and the athletes need a special place to eat. I hope I or…

Donald Bryson, Civitas Institute president, has it all wrong in his “Stop the government takeover of health care,” piece in The Daily Reflector on Nov. 29. Most of the world’s industrial countries whose health care systems are government run have healthier populations than the U.S.…

In this season of hope, love and renewal, someone representing us, America The Beautiful, tear-gassed a pregnant woman and her children at our border. Others were gassed too.

From the perspective of the agent, there might have been a provocation for the gassing. Perhaps he perceived a threat,…

Pipelines are far and away the safest way to move energy, far safer than alternative means. And the state could receive more than $2.5 billion in tax revenues from offshore leasing, per a recent analysis, in turn helping families.

Yet those who decry energy or cheer when a pipeline permit is…
